Tej’s upcoming film, Jawaan’s release date has been announced as September 1. This is the same date when the biggest commercial hit of last year, ‘Janatha Garage’ was released. Despite being a self-claimed admirer of NTR, Tej may not have JG connection in mind while finalizing Sep 1 to release ‘Jawaan’, but an intimidating clash.
Jawaan was earlier slated for a release on August 11, to take advantage of the Independence Day weekend. The theme – ‘Family or Nation’ and the title – ‘Jawaan’, indicate that this film has elements of ‘Patriotism’ at its core. Hence, it would have been befitting if Jawaan was released during Independence Day time. But, the release date has now been pushed to Sep 1 in view of averting clash with two biggies.
Nithin’s upcoming romantic entertainer ‘Lie’, a film directed by the very promising Hanu Raghavapudi, and Boyapati’s ‘Jaya Janaki Nayaka’ have both booked August 11 berth, so makers of Tej’s film may have backed out on a fortuitous release date.
Directed by BVS Ravi, Jawaan has Mehreen playing the female lead.
